Following Jesus (Sermons 1-10)

July 4, 2010  || Following Jesus the Lord of All (Intro to Series) ||  Matt. 28:16-20

What does it mean when we say Jesus is the Lord of all? If he is really the Lord of all, what does it imply for us as Christians and our task of making disciples of nations?

July 11, 2010  ||  You Must Be Born Again ||  John 3:1-15

What is the new birth? Why is it absolutely necessary? If it is impossible for us to cause the new birth, why did Jesus demand it?

July 18, 2010  ||  Repent ||  Matt. 4:12-17

Whom does Jesus demand to repent? Why is repentance necessary? What is true repentance? When do we need to repent?

July 25, 2010  ||  Come to Me ||  Matt. 11:25-30

It is so sweet and not burdensome to hear Jesus inviting us, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

Aug. 8, 2010  ||  Believe in Me ||  John 14:1-11

When life gets tough, our faith becomes fragile. Jesus issues a command to strengthen our feeble faith, “Believe in God; believe also in me” (John 14:1).

Aug. 15, 2010  ||  Love Me More Than Anyone ||  Luke 7:36-50

Discipleship is about a love relationship with Jesus. Jesus is calling us not just to love him, but to love him more than anything or anyone in our life. What do we need to remember so that we will love Jesus more each day?

Aug. 22, 2010  ||  Listen to Me ||  Luke 10:38-42

Like Martha, the busyness of life and ministry may distract us from what is really important in life. Why is this such a problem in our relationship with Jesus? What is that “one thing” in Jesus’ statement to Martha, “Only one thing is needed”?

Sept. 5, 2010  ||  Forsake All and Follow Me ||  Mark 10:17-31

There is nothing more important than to know the answer to the question, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Listen to Jesus’ answer to this question and find out what it implies for those who follow Jesus.

Sept. 19, 2010  ||  Do This For Me ||  Matt. 25:31-46

Our relationship with Christ as disciples has a connection with how we treat other people. What is it? What does it have to do with Judgment Day?

Oct. 3, 2010  ||  Abide in Me ||  John 15:1-17

Fruitfulness is a necessary distinguishing mark of a true disciple of Christ. Faithfulness to Christ leads to fruitfulness in the Christian life.
